Nero Attoru: Right of way has some roots in realism, since attacking is given priority (which makes sense given the fact that the attacker would theoretically strike a killing blow first) Mar 6, 2019 16:15:21 GMT -5
Nero Attoru: Regardless, epee is a weapon that most people forget, and doesn't use right of way! Two hits gives each fencer a point, reflecting the double kill. Mar 6, 2019 16:16:06 GMT -5
cyclingswitch: I get why they went with that system though. If you watch Saber Legion fighting instead, it becomes more akin to kendo. It's realistic fighting but it doesn't look like Star Wars anymore. Mar 23, 2019 20:34:49 GMT -5
cyclingswitch: In Saber Legion, moving your saber around more than you need to to thrust, parry or do a quick strike to the waist or head is basically giving away a point. At least that's what I've seen in the matches I've watched with their style. Mar 23, 2019 20:36:10 GMT -5
Colin the Grey: Hey guys, whenever someone can find the time to go over my second Shii-Cho formula primer submission, that'll be a huge help. My free time is going to go down hard in a month or so, and I'd like to make more progress in the meantime. Thanks! Mar 25, 2019 11:31:16 GMT -5

thewhitesnake: Salutations, fellow light saber wielders! I am attempting to familiarize myself with this forum tool. Apr 14, 2020 18:42:56 GMT -5
thewhitesnake: I'm not sure if I'm in the right section or not, but can anyone recommend a good source for martial arts terms? Is there, like, a martial arts dictionary or something? Thank you! Apr 21, 2020 11:25:08 GMT -5
Furiora Helseare: It's not exactly an easy thing to make because different martial arts use different terms and even different systems within the same art can have different terms (Example; Where I studied TKD, a pattern was called a a "Hyung", in others is a "Tul") Apr 28, 2020 11:02:09 GMT -5
